Tidal Gatherings 2014


Sandsend nr Whitby –


Team RF had a most fantastic day creating work on Sandsend Beach Nr Whitby! We met some amazingly creative people who sang, balanced stones, raked sand, got arty with crab shells, took beautiful pictures and generally created a very special vibe! Thanks to the Yorkshire Visual Artist Network for supporting, the Whitby Community Choir for your lovely songs and everyone who turned up to see us!

Birling Gap BAWI


James spent a great day at Birling Gap on the South Coast, working with US Stone Artist North Watt.  Long time Facebook friends it was the first opportunity for them to work together.  They led a public stone balancing workshop at the fantastic Birling Gap visitors centre, before spending the last hour on the beach.  Good times indeed. RF are looking forward to more stone artists meet ups with a Yorkshire event in the planning for September, thanks to funding from the YVAN scheme. Keep a watch out for more details soon.
